There's a good way to fish spinnerbaits from shore. I rig this up for our boatless campers. Using 17# mono and a 7' MH rod tie on a big enough topwater lure to suspend the weight of a spinnerbait. You might have to go down to a 1/4 oz spinnerbait. You can use any flotation device. Tie on a fluorocarbon leader however long the spinnerbait will remain out of trouble on bottom. Maximum length is about 3' so it can be cast. Lob the rig as far out as possible close to any stickup tree or other known cover. Let the spinnerbait flutter down until the topwater bobs down, then swim it forward. Pause, swim, pause, swim.

Attach the leader to whichever treble that works best. Tying to the tail hook kills some topwater action, but allows the topwater to climb when pulled, getting back to the surface. Sometimes the middle of 3 hooks works best.
